Death of Rev. D. P. mtchey.
Rev. David Preston Ritchey was
born in Blount Co., Tenn. Feb. 11,
1808, and died in this place June 21,
1801, being at the time of his death 83
years, 4 months and 10 days old. He
was married to his first wife, Miss
Stacy Brown, in Marion county,
Tenn, about the year 1829, and mov
ed to this county in January 1831,
and up to the time of his death, Sun
day morning, 10:30 o'clock, he lived
in this and adjoining counties. He
was a blacksmith by trade, and fol
lowed this occupation for the support
of his family a9 long as he was able
to work. About the years 1837-38 he
was licensed and ordained to preach
the gospel by the McMinnville Pres
bytery of the C. P. Church, from
which time he faithfully discharged
his duty as a preacher, giving to the
church all the time he could spare
from his shop. How well ho per
formed his duty, and the faithful
manner in which he preached the
gospel in his plain and simple way
in many parts oi this and adjoining
counties, is better known to some of
the older citizens who often heard
him. For several years he was una
ble to work or preach, being feeble
in body and mind. He had been
patiently waiting for many years to
be called to his reward. This world
and its cares had lost their charms
to him. The religion he had preach
ed so many years to others was suf
ficient for him. Whenever his mind
was clear enough he always expres
sed himself as ready and anxious to
be called home. As above stated, he
died Sunday morning, peacefully,
without a struggle, and his spirit re
turned to the God who gave it. On
Monday at 1 o'clock he was buried
by the side of his first wife, in the
cemetery at the Armstrong meeting
house, near Irving College.
Death of IF. S. Hassle.
Washington Summerfield Massie
was born Dec. 5, 1832, in Fanquier
county, Va. In 1837 he moved to
Alabama. In 1818 he was married
to Miss Fidelia McKinstry. In the
fall of 18-50 he moved to Tennessee
and settled near Woodbury, where
he lived until 1S70, when he moved
to Warren county. For twenty-one
years he had been a good citizen of
this county. Since early boyhood he
had been an active member of the
Methodist church. lie was steward
in the church for many years, also a
class leader. He was a regular sub-
-KITCHEN, ' '
x DINING ROOM SETS,
scriber for his church paper, the
Nashville Christian Advocate, for
forty years. His wife and six of his
seven children, live sons and .one
daughter, survive him. Two months
ago he had a severe attack of la
grippe. With him as with so many
old people, the diseaso proved fatal,
his death occurring at 12:30 o'clock
Tuesday morning, June 23rd. Funer
al services were held at the residence
on Spring street, by Rev. J. T. Curry.
Thus has passed away another of our
good men and true citizens.
Editor Standard: We are so of
ten asked, "What are dried fruits
going to be worth?" that we feel in
clined to give your readers what little
information we have been able to
gather from various parts of the
United States. We can not give a
satisfactory answer. From the best
information we can get lrom the
informed, there is a pretty large crop
of apples as well as blackberries.
In some parts of New York, and
in iacr, some otner apple growing
sections, the crop i3 short, but taken
as a whole, it is thought the crop will
rje large, mis neing me case, we
will necessarily have much lower
prices. There will be a good demand
for nice, bright, well cut and dried
apples, but prices will be in propor
tion to the quantity offered on the
market. The blackberry crop is
very large, and if pretty well dried,
prices will rule low. For several
years the demand lor blackberries
has been les3 and less every year, and
this, with the large crop, will likely
cause them to open low. There were
also some old berries carried over in
cold storage. Peaches, likeblackber
ries, lor some years nave been in
less demand and consequently they
may run lower in value.
We are of the opinion that apples
if nicely dried, either in sun or evap
orated, will be in better demand and
at better prices than any other kind
of dried fruit. It is very important
this year, in fact every year, tha
dried fruits should be nice and bright
But as to what the prices will be we
can't tell yet. We think the first on
the market, if good quality, wil
command the best prices. Every
body must be their own judge as to
when to sell.

From Nature's Storehouse. .
It stands to reason that a medicine
which will destroy the germs of con
tagious blood poison and counteract
the effect of mercurial poisoning may
be.depended on to overcome the dis
eases that have their origin in
malaria, or that have their scat
in an impure conditon of the
blood. This is what S S. S. has
done, and what it will bo, as its pop
ularity attests. As a preventive, and
a remedy for the long list of affec
tions that display their activity dur
iug the spring and summer months,
it stands without a rival. The secret
of this is a remedy drawn from na
ture's own storehouse.
